Coping with Alzheimer’s Disease or Other Dementias.

Dementia is a progressive terminal illness that causes a person to develop worsening memory loss and an inability to carry out daily tasks. In the end stages of Alzheimer’s disease, supportive services like in-home, palliative or hospice care can provide expert symptom management and compassion to patients and their families.

If you or a loved one have any of these signs and symptoms of the final stages of dementia, let us help you:

  • Inability to communicate effectively
  • Inability to carry out activities of daily living independently, such as dressing, bathing and/or eating
  • Urinary and bowel incontinence
  • Decreased nutritional intake with progressive weight loss
  • Recurring infections requiring hospitalization
  • Difficult behaviors
  • Repeated hospitalizations, rehabilitation stays or ER visits
